What does it mean rate limit exceeded on Twitter? Users cannot view tweets without logging in to the platform. Verified accounts can now read 6,000 posts per day, unverified accounts 600 posts and new un-verified accounts 300 posts. After that, users will get a message that says, “rate limit exceeded”. Musk has said that limit will “soon” increase to 10,000 for verified, 1,000 for unverified and 500 for new unverified. He has been pushing to make Twitter’s overhauled verified service more attractive. Musk made Twitter verified – special badges that were earlier given to notable profiles – a paid subscription and introduced tiers like gray, blue and golden badges. Why did Musk put the limit? Musk said the limits would help tackle scraping vast amounts of data from Twitter by almost everyone – from AI companies and startups to tech behemoths.
